Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is your service?

    Pegasus Imagery offers geospatial data collection (LiDAR & Hyper Spectral Imaging) flying our drones with attached sensors. Our data as a service provides asset monitoring and protecting the environment and people.

  • What is geospatial data?

    The term geospatial is used to define collective data such as LiDAR and Hyper Spectral imaging and associated technology which has a geographic or location component. The data can be in the form of vectors, rasters, high resolution images, real-time or captured video and statistical tabular data.

  • What are the cost benefits?

    Our data as a service is extremely cost-effective compared to monitoring by satellites, planes and helicopters due to their costs in manufacturing, purchasing and operational expenses versus drones.

  • How is data collected?

    Via our Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), our pilots and analysts deploy your flight plan and engage sensor monitoring of your assets day or night.

  • How is data analyzed and delivered?

    Collected data is processed via requested parameters after flight, or if real-time video, footage is provided during the flight directly to our clients. All data is provided to the end user as complete overview and brief synopsis via PDF and/or captured video.

  • Why our data is better?

    Our data collection is better than planes, helicopters or satellites as the distance between the targets imaged plays a large role in determining the detail of data information obtained and the total area imaged by the sensor. Sensors onboard platforms far away from their targets such as helicopters, planes and satellites view a larger area, but cannot provide great detail. And due to Pegasus Imagery drones low flight operations, our data collection sensors (which are satellite scaled) are extremely enhanced as we are closer to the ground and the targets, ultimately providing our clients with the absolute best high-resolution video and images.

  • Can you fly in low visibility and at night?

    Yes, our company designed Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) have the necessary equipment to conduct flight operations at night, as well as in low visibility conditions; such as smoke from wildfires.

  • What is Beyond Visual Line of Sight?

    Pegasus Imagery has the ability to fly our drones beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) unmanned which significantly improves their effectiveness and potential. The increased range of BVLOS operations requires real-time airspace situational awareness for the pilot and support crew to ensure safe, repeatable operations. Our drones are specifically designed with active Detect and Avoid technology onboard, enabling true Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations and safety procedures.

  • What are RPAS's?

    RPAS are Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s), Unmanned Aircaraft Systems (UAS’s) and/or in the consumer world know as drones. The term Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) is under regulations which came into effect June 1, 2019 by the Canadian Government to mean "a set of configurable elements consisting of a remotely piloted aircraft, its control station, the command and control links and any other system elements required during flight operation".

  • How do I become a RPAS pilot?

    As advanced operational pilots registered through Transport Canada, pilots must complete the small advanced exam and pass a flight review. But as our RPAS's and pilots are uniquely advanced, please contact us if interested in pursuing a career as a Pilot with Pegasus Imagery.

  • Can I buy your RPAS's?

    Our Canadian designed and manufactured with NATO sourced technology autonomous-capable Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) are long range and operate Beyond Visual Line of Site (BVLOS); and as such are not for sale to consumer markets.

  • What permissions do you have to fly?

    We conduct all necessary flight planning, deconfliction and approval requests with Transport Canada as well as NavCanada while ensuring that federally recognized risk assessments are completed. Also, Pegasus Imagery holds a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) that authorizes flights within Department of National Defence Restricted Airspace across Canada.
